Conflict on iis

Hello.

I've recently handed over an online app  to a company I used to work for. Its a simple asp form to DB app. Nothing too complicated.
The servers I want it copied too are iis servers yet have coldfusion extensions running on them. According to the host, the servers won't support ASP. Is it not by default these servers can run ASP ? Is he making this up?

Please help, I want to copy and paste a statement saying that it is possible..... thanks!

They may mean that ASP is not running on them for some reason.  Many times server admins and web hosting companies limit servers to certain functions such as not mixing PHP and ASP on the same server...for example.  I believe it is possible to run coldfusion and ASP on the same server as is evident by searching for ASP, Cold Fusion and web hosting on google.  Lots of times the reason for limiting them is that it may slow performance of web pages if people are using different types of server side functions all running from the same server.  I can not say that they are lying, I don't remember what is on by default on web servers of the past, I believe ASP was not there by default.  However, on Win2k3 server it is on by default and has to be turned off if not needed or wanted.  In short I am sure it is possible.  It is not feasible that the server can't support ASP.  However, there may be a reason why they choose not to run it or they are incompetent and don't know so they say it is not possible.  You may want to ask them to clarify what they mean by "won't support".

I agree.  If the server doesn't support ASP, it's by choice.

I agree as well.  If this is a Windows server, then it nativly supports ASP and may just be turned off.  This is the case with IIS6.  The ASP application is blocked, yet ASPX is not.  If this is a linux/unix server, the web prvider might not want to go through the trouble of getting biniaries for ASP.  ASP on Linux doesnt work that well any way.  It does not support many functions.

Ask them what type of server it is.

Windows - Does..
Linux - Doesnt, but can...

Good point.  I re-read your question and you didn't say it was Windows/IIS.  Windows/IIS natively supports ASP, Linux/Apache doesn't.  You can configure Linux/Apache to run ASP, but it's probably more trouble than it's worth, especially since it runs PHP so well (for the record, I use PHP rather than ASP on both Linux/Apache and Windows/IIS).

Its all good, basically. Its a typical server running CF. I've gotten macromedia to confirm and a couple other forums.
So thanks for the help.

Hello.

I've uploaded my app to the servers, once a user clicks submit on the admin page... I get this error :

Response object error 'ASP 0156 : 80004005'
Header Error
/tram/admin/checklogin.asp, line 8
The HTTP headers are already written to the client browser. Any HTTP header modifications must be made before writing page content.

any thoughts?
